Code of Maryland , the Maryland State Police respectfully submits 
the 1994 Uniform Crime Report, Crime In Maryland . This 
publication represents the Twentieth Annual Report prepared by 
the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program. 

The data was compiled from monthly reports forwarded to the 
Central Records Division, Maryland State Police, by all law 
enforcement agencies throughout the State of Maryland. Every 
effort has been made to verify the accuracy and completeness of 
the published information. 

Crime In Maryland will assist law enforcement personnel and 
members of state government by providing valuable information in 
planning crime prevention programs, assessing crime patterns and 
developing legislation to combat criminal activity. As always, 
I am readily available should you have any comments or concerns.

INTRODUCTION 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is one of 
the measures that has been taken in the establishment of an 
effective Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) for the State. 
This particular phase of the CJIS focuses on the incidence of crime 
and law enforcement, by establishing a method to collect, evaluate 
and process uniform statistical data on crime statewide. The 
Maryland UCR Program provides the means to forward more valid data 
to the Federal Bureau of Investigation from a single agency and 
also to consolidate it into an annual report entitled "Crime in 
Maryland" . 

NATIONAL UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The counterpart of the Statewide UCR Program is the National 
UCR Program which is under the direction of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. The National Program resulted from a need for a 
uniform compilation of crime statistics nationwide. Uniform Crime 
Reports were first collected in 193 after being developed by a 
committee of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. 

The IACP continues to serve in an advisory capacity to the FBI 
in the current operation of the Program. 

Crime statistics voluntarily submitted by individual law en- 
forcement agencies from all fifty states are presented annually in 
the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports Publication entitled "Crime in the 
United States" . 

MARYLAND UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The FBI has actively assisted individual states in the deve- 
lopment of State UCR Programs compatible with the National Program. 
Maryland took advantage of this assistance in 1972 and was able to 
develop its own program by 1975. 

The responsibility and authority for the collection and dis- 
semination of UCR data was assigned to the Maryland State Police, 
Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services under Article 
88B, Sections 9 and 10, of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 

The Maryland .Uniform Crime Reporting Program became operation- 
al January 1, 1975. This program consists of the uniform class- 
ification, review, compilation and analysis of crime statistics 
reported by all law enforcement agencies of the State pursuant to 
the guidelines and regulations prescribed by law. 



PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES 

In keeping with the recommendation of the President's 
Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, 
the Maryland UCR Program was planned for eventual growth into a 
complete and integrated offender based Criminal Justice Information 
System. Under this program, each offender arrested in Maryland 
will be tracked through the entire criminal justice system from 
time of arrest, through the courts, to the correctional system 
where their exit (parole, expiration of sentence, etc.) will be 
recorded. In this manner, a complete "criminal history" on 
individual offenders will be available for use by the police, 
courts and correctional agencies in Maryland. In addition, 
statistical data derived from the CJIS Program will provide 
assistance in determining the overall efficiency of the Criminal 
Justice System in Maryland and will make effective management 
studies possible. 

The fundamental objectives of the Maryland UCR Program are: 

1. Inform the governor, legislature, other governmental 

officials and the public as to the nature of the 

crime problem in Maryland, its magnitude and its 
trends . 

2 . Provide law enforcement administrators with criminal 
statistics for administrative and operational use. 

3. Determine who commits crimes by age, sex, race and 
other attributes in order to find the proper focus 
for crime prevention and enforcement. 

4 . Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
workload and effectiveness of Maryland's Criminal 
Justice System. 

5. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
effects of prevention and deterrence programs. 

6 . Provide base data and statistics for research to im- 
prove the efficiency, effectiveness and performance 
of criminal justice agencies. 

7. Provide base data to assist in the assessment of 
social and other causes of crime for the development 
of theories of criminal behavior. 

8. Provide the FBI with complete UCR data to be 
included in the national crime reports. 



DEVELOPMENT 

Effective September 1972, the first federal grant was awarded 
to the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (State 
Police) by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration to provide 
money to initiate a Statewide Uniform Crime Reporting Program in 
Maryland. A committee for the implementation of this program was 
then established by the State Police. 

The committee made studies of the federal program, as well as 
several other State UCR Programs, which were operational at that 
time. Forms, tally books and the Maryland UCR Manual were 
developed, printed and distributed to all contributing agencies. 
Questionnaires concerning each law enforcement agencies record 
keeping system were distributed to determine their capability to 
fully participate in the State Program. 

In September 1974, an additional grant was awarded to the De- 
partment of Public Safety and Correctional Services (State Police) 
by Law Enforcement Assistance Administration for the purpose of 
hiring Field Records Representatives to serve as liaison officers 
between the State Program and the contributing law enforcement 
agencies. Also, additional clerical support for the State Program 
was provided in the grant . 

During the developmental phase, several workshops were held in 
various parts of the State to present the UCR Program in detail to 
participating agencies. Since that time, supplemental workshops 
have been held as needed. 

During 1975, the first year of operation, the UCR staff con- 
centrated its efforts in assisting requesting law enforcement 
agencies in devising or improving their record keeping system. The 
UCR staff continued to keep the agencies trained in UCR and to 
provide assistance where needed. Agencies contributing to the UCR 
Program have increased from 102 agencies in 1975 to 125 in 1994. 

The UCR Section collects crime information from these 125 
agencies and publishes quarterly releases reflecting crime trends . 
In addition, this is the eighteenth annual report produced by the 
UCR staff containing an in-depth analysis of all information col- 
lected in the UCR Program including the annual Maryland Battered 
Spouse Report. 



REPORTING PROCEDURES 

Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies are 
required to submit specified Uniform Crime Reports. The necessary 
information for each of the required reports is gathered from each 
agencies record of complaints, investigations and arrests. 



Crime data and information is submitted by state, county and 
municipal law enforcement agencies monthly on the number of 
offenses known to them in the following crime categories: 

(1) Criminal Homicide 

(2) Forcible Rape 

( 3 ) Robbery 

(4) Assault 

(5) Breaking or Entering 

( 6 ) Larceny 

(7) Motor Vehicle Theft 

(8) Arson* 

The count of offenses is taken from the record of complaints 
received by law enforcement agencies from victims, witnesses, other 
sources or discovered by them during their own operation. Com- 
plaints determined by subsequent investigation to be unfounded are 
eliminated from count. The resulting number of "actual offenses 
known to law enforcement agencies" in these crime categories are 
reported without regard for whether anyone is arrested, stolen 
property is recovered, local prosecutive policy or any other 
consideration. 

Reported offenses are recorded by the municipality and county 
in which they occur. Municipal law enforcement agencies report 
those crimes which occur within the cities and state. County 
agencies report those crimes which occur in the counties outside 
the cities. 

A supplemental report is also submitted each month showing the 
value of stolen and recovered property, the type of property and 
the type of offense within a crime category in which it was taken. 
This report also shows the number of stolen vehicles recovered lo- 
cally and by other jurisdictions. In addition, each agency reports 
the number of persons arrested by them or other agencies for crimes 
which have occurred within their jurisdiction. The arrest report 
also shows the age, sex and race of those arrested and the 
disposition of juveniles by the arresting agency. When applicable, 
supplemental reports are submitted regarding the persons, weapons 
and circumstances, etc., involved in homicides, spousal or officer 
assaults and "carjackings". 

In addition, police employee data is collected on an annual 
basis . 



♦Monthly arson reports are submitted for law enforcement agencies 
by the State Fire Marshal's Office and designated county agencies. 



VERIFICATION PROCESS 

A major concern in the collection of crime statistics for law 
enforcement agencies throughout the state is the uniformity and 
accuracy of data received. Program aides such as guides and 
instructional classes do not necessarily guarantee the accuracy of 
the reports submitted by the contributors, therefore, additional 
controls are necessary. 

Each report received by the UCR section is recorded, examined 
and verified for mathematical accuracy and possibly more impor- 
tant for reasonableness. The verification process includes nume- 
rous checks to ensure the validity of information. The elimination 
of duplicate reporting by individual contributors receives 
particular attention. Minor errors are corrected by telephone con- 
tact with the contributors. Substantial variations and errors are 
adjusted through personal contacts. The personal contacts are 
invaluable to the accuracy and quality of reporting. Field Records 
Representatives are engaged in a constant educational effort and as 
such, provide a vital link between the UCR Program and the 
contributor. 



POPULATION DATA 

The computation of crime rates as they appear in this report 
by municipality, county and state are based on the latest avail- 
able population estimates for the year as provided by the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation through the cooperation and assistance of 
the United States Bureau of Census. 



LIMITATIONS OF A UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

Information currently collected by the Maryland Program is 
generally the same as that gathered by the National System and the 
methods of classifying and scoring offenses and arrests are the 
same. This readily enables comparisons with other states and with 
the nation, as a whole. However, there are limitations to the 
information collected which should be clearly understood before any 
conclusions are drawn from the UCR data presented in this report. 

The main goal of the UCR Program is to furnish police admin- 
istrators with a measure of their activities and operational prob- 
lems as indicated by the number of reported offenses, arrests, 
clearances, etc. 



A first step in the control of crime is to ascertain the true 
dimensions of the problem. However, present statistics as gathered 
by the UCR Program measure neither the real incidence of crime or 
the full amount of economic loss to victims. Information regarding 
number of offenses, clearances, value and type of property stolen 
and recovered property are collected only for the eight Part I 
offenses. For Part II offenses the only information submitted is 
the number of arrests for these crimes. Consequently, there is no 
record of the actual number of these offenses occurring, or is 
there a calculation made for property loss. 

The Crime Index does not explicitly take into account the 
varying degrees of seriousness of its seven components (excluding 
arson) . Each crime receives the same weight as it is added to the 
index, consequently, an auto theft is counted the same as a murder 
and an aggravated assault is weighed equally with an attempted 
breaking or entering. Any review of crime must consider the 
volume, rate and trend of each offense that comprises the index and 
the relationship between these seven crimes*. 

The Maryland and National Uniform Crime Reporting Programs are 
designed to measure offenses committed and persons arrested. 
Difficulties can arise if this distinction is not kept clearly in 
mind. Crimes relate to events, arrests relate to persons. Unlike 
traffic violations where there is usually one event, violation and 
offender, a single criminal act can involve several crimes, 
offenders and victims. Relating specific crimes to a criminal or 
offense to evaluate characteristics of those arrested, is generally 
beyond the scope of the present Uniform Crime Reporting System. 

Juvenile crime and arrest statistics, because of their nature, 
are another area of misunderstanding. Many juvenile offenders are 
handled informally, as a consequence, inaccurate or incomplete 
recording of the event or action may result. Procedures for hand- 
ling juveniles vary between departments more so than the handling 
of adult offenders. Furthermore, the degree of juvenile involve- 
ment in cleared offenses is probably seriously misunderstood 
because the juvenile clearance indicator is recorded only when 
juveniles are exclusively involved. When both adults and juveniles 
are subjects in a clearance, the juvenile participation is not 
reported. 

The preceding comments should not be viewed as an indictment 
of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program which, admittedly, is desig- 
ned for the operational requirements of law enforcement agencies. 
While current methods of gathering and reporting crime and arrest 
data provide a less than complete picture of criminality in our 
society, there is at present no other information system in general 
use that will more adequately perform this task. 



Arson is not used at this time in computing the Crime Index.

CLASSIFICATION OF OFFENSES 



Uniformity in reporting is based upon the proper classification 
of offenses. 

The adoption of the Federal System of UCR included the 
utilization of the offense classifications of that system. Law 
enforcement agencies of this State have made accurate application 
of those classifications in the reports submitted to the Maryland 
UCR System. 



OFFENSES IN UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING 



Offenses in UCR are divided into two groupings designated as 
Part I and Part II offenses. Offense and arrest information is

CRIME FACTORS 



Statistics compiled under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program 
from data submitted by the law enforcement agencies of Maryland pro- 
jects a statewide view of crime. Awareness of the presence of cer- 
tain crime factors which may influence the resulting volume and type 
of statistics presented is necessary if fair and equitable conclu- 
sions are to be drawn. These crime influencing factors are present 
to some degree in every community, and their presence affects in 
varying degrees the crime experience of that community. Attempts at 
comparison of crime figures between communities should not be made 
without first considering the individual factors present in each 
community. 

Crime, as an outgrowth of society, remains a social problem of 
grave concern, and the police are limited in their role to its sup- 
pression and detection. As stated by the President's Commission on 
Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice in their 
report "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society" (1967 - Page 92) : 

"But the fact that the police deal daily with 
crime does not mean that they have unlimited power 
to prevent it, or reduce it, or deter it. The 
police did not create and cannot resolve the social 
conditions that stimulate crime. They did not start 
and cannot stop the convulsive social changes that 
are taking place in America. They do not enact the 
laws that they are required to enforce, nor do they 
dispose of the criminals they arrest. The police are 
only one part of the criminal justice system; the 
criminal justice system is only one part of the 
government; and the government is only one part of 
society. In so far as crime is a social phenomenon, 
crime prevention is the responsibility of every part 
of society. The criminal process is limited to case 
by case operations, one criminal or one crime at a 
time . " 



Set forth below are some of the conditions which affect the 
type and volume of crime that occurs from place to place: 

Density '.and size of the community population 
and the metropolitan area of which it is a 
part. 

Composition of the population with particular 
reference to age, sex and race. 

Economic status of the population. 



13 



Relative stability of the population including 
number and ratio of seasonal visitors/ 
residents, commuters and other transients. 

Climate and seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational and religious charac- 
teristics . 

Standards governing appointments to the police 
force . 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the 
courts . 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement 
problems . 

The administrative and investigative efficiency 
of the local law enforcement agency, including 
the degree of adherence to crime reporting 
standards . 

Organization and cooperation of adjoining and 
overlapping police jurisdictions.

CRIME INDEX 

The tabulations presented in the tables, graphs and charts in 
this publication indicate the volume and distribution of crime in 
Maryland on the basis of a Crime Index. The crime figures are 
broken down by agency, county, regional and state totals. 

The total number of criminal acts that occur is unknown, but 
those that are reported to law enforcement provide the first means 
of a count. Not all crimes are of sufficient importance to be 
significant in an index; and not all important crimes occur with 
enough regularity to be meaningful in an index. With these 
considerations in mind, the following crimes were selected to 
comprise the Crime Index as they are significant either by nature or 
frequency of occurrence: 

1. Murder and Nonnegligent Manslaughter 

2 . Forcible Rape 

3 . Robbery 

4. Aggravated Assault 

5 . Breaking or Entering 

6 . Larceny-Theft 

7 . Motor Vehicle Theft 
8 . Arson* 

CALCULATION OF RATES AND TRENDS 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program provides data for police 
executives to measure local problems. To facilitate this function, 
it is sometimes necessary to convert the data into rates, 
percentages or trends. The following guidelines are presented to 
demonstrate the methods involved in making these calculations and 
conversions . 

CRIME RATES 

One of the most meaningful crime statistics is the Crime Rate. 
This rate is the number of offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. This 
rate can be calculated regardless of the number of inhabitants in 
your city or county. To compute rates, divide your city's 
population by 100,000 and divide the number of offenses in each 
class by that answer. The answer is the number of offenses in each 
class per 100,000 and is your Crime Rate for that offense. 

An example of this calculation is: 

a) Population for your jurisdiction 75,000 



*Arson statistics are not included in the Crime Index 



15 



b) Number of burglaries for your 

jurisdiction for a year 215 

Divide: 75,000 by 100,000 = .75 

Divide: 215 by .75 = 286.7 

the burglary rate is: 286.7 per 100,00 inhabitants 

The number of .75 can now be divided into your totals in any 
offense class to produce a Crime Rate for that offense. 

This same computation may be used to obtain arrest rates per 
100,000 inhabitants. 

CLEARANCE RATES 

The percentage of crimes cleared by arrest is obtained by 
dividing the number of offenses cleared by the number of actual 
offenses. This answer is then multiplied by 100. An example of 
this calculation is: 

a) Number of clearances in robbery 3 8 

b) Number of actual robberies 72 
Divide: 3 8 by 72 = .528 
Multiply: .528 x 100 = 52.8 
The clearance rate for robbery is: 52.8%. 

PERCENTAGE OF CHANGE 

The method most commonly used to compare crime statistics for 
the current year with any prior year is the Percent of Change. This 
percent is calculated by subtracting the prior year ' s data from the 
current year's data and dividing the resulting figure by the prior 
year's data. The answer is then multiplied by 100. An example of 
this calculation is: 

a) Current year's murders 3 99 

b) Prior year's murders 350 
Subtract: 350 from 399 = 49 
Divide: 49 by 350 = .140 
Multiply: .14 x 100 = 14.0 

the Percent of Change for murder is a 14.0% increase. 



16 



CRIME INDEX OFFENSES 



The crime counts set forth in this publication are actual 
offenses established by police investigation. When police receive 
a complaint of a crime and the follow-up investigation discloses no 
crime occurred, it is "unfounded" . 

In 1994, police investigations that were "unfounded" 
represented 3 percent of the complaints concerning index offenses, 
ranging from 1 percent in the aggravated assault category to 14 
percent in the rape category as compared to 1993, when there was 1 
percent "unfounded" in the aggravated assault category and 12 
percent in the rape category. 

A total of 306,441 actual Index Offenses were reported to law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland during the calendar year 1994. 
This represents an increase of 1 percent when compared to the 1993 
data which was comprised of a total 303,164 Crime Index Offenses. 

An analysis of Index Offenses by month in 1994 shows that 
August had the highest frequency of occurrence and February had the 
lowest. In 1993, August also had the highest frequency of 
occurrence and February the lowest. 

The Crime Index Offenses represent the most common problem to 
law enforcement. They are serious crimes by their nature, volume, 
or frequency of occurrence. They are categorized as Violent Crime, 
which includes Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery and Aggravated 
Assault, or as Property Crimes which includes Breaking or Entering, 
Larceny and Motor Vehicle Theft. 



VIOLENT CRIME 

Violent Crimes involve the element of personal confrontation 
between the perpetrator and the victim; consequently, they are 
considered more serious than Property Crimes because of their very 
nature. These offenses accounted for 15 percent of the total Crime 
Index for 1994. In 1993, Violent Crimes accounted for 16 percent of 
the total Crime Index. Violent Crime decreased 4 percent compared to 
1993. 

Analyzing the" Violent Crimes by month reveals August had the 

greatest frequency of occurrence, while February had the lowest. In 

1993, August also had the highest frequency of occurrence and 
February had the lowest. 



17 



PROPERTY CRIMES 

The number of Property Crimes reported during 1994, was more 
than 5 times greater than the number of Violent Crimes reported. As 
a group, Property Crimes made up 85 percent of the total Crime Index 
in 1994. In 1993, Property Crime made up 84 percent of the total 
Crime Index. Property Crime increased 2 percent in 1994. 

A monthly analysis showed August had the highest frequency of 
occurrence and February the lowest, the same as in 1993. 

RATES 

Crime Rates relate the incidence of crime to the resident 
population. Many other factors which may contribute to the volume 
and type of crime in a given jurisdiction are not incorporated here, 
but are shown in the section entitled "Crime Factors". 

In 1994, the Crime Rate for Maryland was 6,121.5 victims for 
every 100,000 population. This represents a .3 percent increase in 
the Crime Rate when compared to the 1993 rate of 6,106.0. 

The 1994 Crime Rate for the Violent Crime group was 947.9 
victims per 100,000 inhabitants, a 5.0 percent decrease compared 
with the 1993 rate of 998.1. The Property Crime group had a rate of 
5,173.5 victims, a 1.3 percent increase when compared to the 1993 
rate of 5,107.9. 

CLEARANCES 

For Uniform Crime Reporting purposes, a crime is cleared when 
police have identified the offender, have evidence to charge him and 
actually take him into custody. Solutions of crimes are also 
recorded in exceptional instances where some element beyond police 
control precludes formal charges against the offender, such as the 
victim's refusal to prosecute or local prosecution is declined 
because the subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a crime 
committed in another jurisdiction. The arrest of one person can 
clear several crimes or several persons may be arrested in the 
process of solving one crime. 

Maryland Law Enforcement Agencies cleared 21 percent of all 
Index Offenses reported to them in 1994, as compared to 22 percent 
in 1993. 

The Violent Crimes recorded a 43 percent clearance rate in 1994 
and 19 93. The Property Crime group experienced a 17 percent 
clearance rate in 1994, as compared to 1993, with an 18 percent 
clearance rate. 

Considered individually the 1994 Violent Crime clearance rate 
was determined to be 67 percent of the Murders, 59 percent of the 
Rapes, 21 percent of the Robberies and 59 percent of the Aggravated 
Assaults. The Property Crime clearance rates were 15 percent for 
Breaking or Entering, 19 percent for Larceny and 15 percent for 
Motor Vehicle Theft. 



18 



The relatively high clearance rate for Violent Crimes as 
compared to Non-Violent Property Crimes is in part attributable to 
the volume difference between the two. Property Crime volume is 
much greater that of Violent Crime and police investigation of 
Violent Crime is usually more intense. While the element of direct 
contact between the victim and perpetrator, as well as witness 
identification also contributes to this higher rate of solution for 
Violent Crime, stealth is involved to a greater degree in the 
Property Crimes. 

JUVENILE CLEARANCES 

A juvenile clearance is the clearance of an offense in which 
all of the offenders involved were under the age of 18. If even one 
of the offenders was over 17 years of age, the clearance of that 
offense is not considered a juvenile clearance. 

In 1994, such juvenile clearances represented 21 percent of all 
clearances, compared to 19 percent in 1993. 

Juvenile clearances in the Violent Crime category represented 
16 percent of the total cleared in 1994 with 6 percent of all 
clearances in Homicide cases, 10 percent of those in Rape cases, 16 
percent in Robbery cases and 17 percent in aggravated assault cases. 
Juvenile clearances were 15 percent of all clearances in the Violent 
Crime category in 1993. 

In the Property Crime category, clearances involving Juvenile 
offenders represented 23 percent of the total cases cleared in 1994, 
with 19 percent of all clearances in Burglary cases, 22 percent of 
those in Larceny cases and 36 percent in Motor Vehicle Theft cases. 
Juvenile clearances were 21 percent of all clearances in the 
Property Crime category in 1993 . 

STOLEN PROPERTY VALUE 

The total value of Property Stolen during 1994 was $384,005,621 
which represents a 12 percent increase from 1993 . Recovered Property 
amounted to $154,108,390 which is 40 percent of the total stolen, 
resulting in a $229,897,231 property loss to victims in the State of 
Maryland during 1994. This property loss represents an 11 percent 
increase when compared to the property loss in 1993 .

MURDER 




MURDER 



Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter is the willful (non- 
negligent) killing of one human being by another. 



VOLUME AND RATE 



During 1994, a total of 579 murders were reported, this 
represents an 8 percent decrease over 1993 . Murder accounted for 1 
percent of all violent crime and .2 percent of the crime index. In 
1994, there were 11.6 murders per 100,000 population. 



ANALYSIS OF MURDER 



In 1994, 67 percent (386) of the total murders were cleared 
with 6 percent (23) of the murder clearances involving only juvenile 
offenders . 

There were 588 persons arrested in 1994 for murder, 95 percent 
(558) male, 86 percent (505) Black, 14 percent (82) White and 18 
percent (103) juveniles. 

During 1994, 249 of the murder victims occurred in the 3 and 
older age group representing 42 percent of the total . 

Handguns predominate as the weapon most often used accounting 
for 66 percent (384) of the 1994 murders. This represents an 11 
percent decrease in handgun use when compared to the handgun use of 
68 percent (432) in 1993. The next most used weapon was a knife 
accounting for 13 percent (74) of 1994 murders. This represents a 10 
percent decrease compared to 1993 knife use percentage. 

Drug related murders accounted for 8 percent (49) of the total. 
When compared to the 1993 drug related murder total of 74, there was 
a 34 percent decrease. 

Family members as offenders in murder accounted for 9 percent 
(55) while boyfriend or girlfriend (those not cohabitating) reflects 
4 percent (23) of the total reported. There was a 4 percent 
increase in family related murders while boyfriend or girlfriend 
murders decreased 8 percent. Additionally, an acquaintance is 
listed in 21 percent (122) of 1994 murders. Strangers and unknown 
relationships accounted for two other large categories, 13 percent 
(77) and 61 percent (351) respectively. 



21 



In 49 percent (284) of the murders, the offenders are unknown 
and not described. When the race of the victim and offender is 
known the offender is most often someone of the same race.

BATTERED 
SPOUSE 




BATTERED SPOUSE 



INTRODUCTION 



The Maryland Battered Spouse Program was established through 
House Joint Resolution 32 which was introduced by Delegate Pauline 
Menes, requesting the Maryland State Police to maintain certain 
information on complaints of domestic assaults. The statistics in 
this report were collected from January 1, 1994 through December 31, 
1994. 



DEFINITION 



A Battered Spouse in the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) 
Program is considered to be: 

1. A married person living with their spouse upon 
whom an aggravated or non-aggravated assault 
was committed by their mate. 

2 . A married person estranged from their spouse 
upon whom an aggravated or non-aggravated 
assault was committed by their mate. 

3 . A male and female not married to each other and 
who are living together or had lived together 
at some time, upon whom an aggravated or non- 
aggravated assault was committed by their mate. 



LIMITATIONS OF A BATTERED SPOUSE REPORTING PROGRAM 



There are limitations to the information collected which should 
be clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn from the data 
presented in this report. 

Procedures for handling non-aggravated spousal assaults vary 
between departments, and counties of occurrence. In some instances, 
they are reported directly to the court system and not to a police 
department. They are often handled informally. Consequently, 
incomplete or inaccurate recording of the event may result. 

While the current method of collecting Battered Spouse 
information for this report provides less than a complete picture, 
there is at present, no other informational system in general use 
gathering these statistics from police agencies that will more 
accurately perform this task.

CLASSIFICATION 

Aggravated assault, as defined under the Maryland Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program, is an unlawful attack by one person upon another 
for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. 
This type of assault usually is accompanied by the use of a weapon 
or by means likely to produce death or severe bodily harm. Attempts 
are included since it is not necessary that an injury result when 
a gun, knife, or other weapon is used which would result in serious 
personal injury if the crimes were successfully completed. An 
assault in which hands, fists and feet are used and severe personal 
injury to the victim results, is also classified as an aggravated 
assault. 

Any assault in which hands, fists and feet are used and no 
serious injury to the victim results, is classified as a non- 
aggravated assault. 



AGGRAVATED/NON-AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 

During 19-94, there were 20,378 spousal assaults representing 
an increased of 4 percent. A total of 3,211 spousal assaults were 
reported as aggravated. This represents a 1 percent decrease over 
the 3,245 aggravated spousal assaults reported in 1993. Aggravated 
assaults were 16 percent of the total spousal assaults in 1994, as 
compared to 17 percent in 1993.

Analysis: From 1990 to 1993 over 54 percent and in 1994 over 50 
percent of all spousal assaults have consistently occurred between 
the hours of 6:00 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. and over 48 percent during the 
three day period, Friday through Sunday. When combined, this would 
indicate that most spousal assaults are likely to occur between 6:00 
P.M. and 3:00 A.M. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

VICTIM 



In 1994, the spousal assault victims were female in 81.6 
percent of all cases as compared to 82.7 percent in 1993, a 1.3 
percent decrease in the female victim ratio. 

During 1994, 51.7 percent of the victims were White, 46.8 
percent Black and 1.5 percent were of other races. In 1993, 53.2 
percent were White, 45.7 percent Black and 1.0 percent were of other 
races . 

Most victims of spousal assault are between 25 to 40 years of 
age, 63.1 percent in 1994 compared to 63.2 percent in 1993. 



CLEARANCES 



There are two ways of clearing a case. One is by making an 
arrest and charging* the person (s) with the offense. The second is 
known as an exceptional clearance whereby the police know the 
identity and location of the person (s) who committed the offense and 
have enough information to arrest them but there is some reason 
beyond their control that prevents them from making the arrest. The 
most frequent reason is the victims neglect or refusal to prosecute. 

Of all spousal assaults reported in 1994, 81.3 percent were 
cleared, 31.7 percent by arrest and 49.5 percent exceptionally. In 
18.7 percent of the incidents the dispositions of the cases were 
unknown. During 1993, 81.3 percent of all spousal assault cases 
were cleared, 28.6 percent by arrest and 52.7 percent exceptionally. 
In 18.6 percent of the cases, the dispositions were unknown. 



RATIO OF SPOUSAL TO NON-SPOUSAL ASSAULTS

ARREST DATA 



ARREST DATA 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program requires the 
submission of monthly reports of persons arrested in the state. 
A record of arrest activity for both Part I and Part II crimes are 
received from state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies 
showing the age, sex and race of persons arrested. Traffic 
arrests, except Driving While Intoxicated, are not reported. A 
total of 274,494 arrests for Part I and Part II criminal offenses 
were reported during 1994. In 1993, there were 27 0,801 arrests 
which represents a 1 percent increase. Based on 1994 population 
estimates, there were 5483.3 arrests per 100,000 population in 
Maryland. The arrest rate for 1993 was 5,454.2 representing a 1 
percent decrease in the arrest rate. 

A person is counted on the monthly arrest report each time 
they are arrested. This means that a person may be arrested 
several times during a given month and would be counted each time. 
However, a person is counted only once each time regardless of the 
number of crimes or charges involved. A juvenile is counted as 
"arrested" when the circumstances are such that, if the juvenile 
were an adult, an arrest would have been counted or when police or 
other official action is taken beyond a mere interview, warning or 
admonishment . 

Arrest figures do not indicate the number of individuals 
arrested or summonsed since, as stated above, one person may be 
arrested several times during the month. However, arrest 
information is useful in measuring the extent of law enforcement 
activities in a given geographic area as well as providing an 
index for measuring the involvement in criminal acts by the age, 
sex and race of perpetrators . 

During 1994, 23 percent of all reported arrests were for 
Crime Index Offenses, compared to 24 percent in 1993. Analysis of 
Crime Index Arrest Data indicates that larceny comprised the 
highest percentage of all arrests for Crime Index offenses, with 
51 percent of the total in 1994, compared to 50 percent in 1993. 
The drug abuse, other assaults, driving under the influence and 
disorderly conduct categories continue to record the highest 
percentage of arrests for Part II offenses. These offenses 
accounted for 47 percent of the total arrests for Part II offenses 
in 1994.

VIOLENT CRIME ARRESTS 



Arrests for crimes of violence accounted for 21 percent of the 
total arrests for Crime Index Offenses and 5 percent of the total 
arrests in 1994 compared to 22 and 5 percent respectively in 1993. 

A further evaluation indicates that arrests for robbery and

The highest percentage of property crime arrests, 64 percent, 
continues to occur in the larceny category. 



DRUG ABUSE VIOLATION ARRESTS 



Information pertaining to drug abuse violation arrests is 
collected according to specific drug categories and whether the 
arrest was for sale or manufacture or possession of a specific drug. 
During 1994, a total of 38,054 arrests for drug abuse law violations 
were reported compared to 1993 with 35,744 arrests, resulting in a 
6 percent increase. 

Evaluation of the reported data discloses that 33 percent of all 
persons arrested for drug abuse violations were under 21 years of age 
and 16 percent were under 18 years of age in 1994 compared to 29 and 
13 percent respectively in 1993 . 

Analysis of individual categories showed that the highest 
percentage of arrests, which involved opium or cocaine and 
derivatives, was 62 percent in 1994 and 65 percent in 1993. Drug 
abuse arrest for marijuana increased to 29 percent in 1994 from 25 
percent in 1993 . Of the total drug abuse arrests 61 percent were for 
possession while 39 percent were for sale or manufacture in 1994, 
compared to 61 and? 39 percent respectively in 1993. 

Possession of marijuana increased to 24 percent of the total 
drug abuse arrests in 1994, from 20 percent in 1993. Possession of 
opium or cocaine and derivatives represented 3 percent of the total 
drug abuse arrests in 1994, compared to 33 percent in 1993. Arrests 
for sale or manufacture of marijuana increased to 5 percent of the 
total drug abuse arrests in 1994 from 4 percent in 1993 . Sale or 
manufacture of opium or cocaine and derivatives was 32 percent of the 
total drug abuse arrests in 1994, the same as in 1993.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 



One law enforcement officer was killed in the line of duty in 
Maryland during 1994. The following summary is based on in- 
formation provided by their Department and the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation who conduct in-depth investigations of these tragic 
incidents in which law enforcement officers have made the supreme 
sacrifice in the performance of their duties. 



JANUARY 25, 1994 

A Montgomery County Police Officer, veteran of 6 years was 
responding to a call for service. While enroute the officer's 
patrol car slid on a large area of ice, striking a utility pole, 
killing him.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSAULTED 

The following information is based on a detailed monthly- 
collection of data in the Uniform Crime Reporting System regarding 
the problem of assaults on local, county and state law enforcement 
officers. The large number of reported assaults on sworn officers 
is in part due to a prevalent attitude of disrespect for law 
enforcement in certain elements of our society. 

A total of 4,178 law enforcement officers in Maryland were 
victims of assault in the line of duty during 1994, compared to 
4,126 assaults during 1993 resulting in a 1 percent increase. 

The rate of assaults on law enforcement officers for the 
state was 31 assaults for every 100 sworn officers in 1994, 
compared to 32 assaults per 100 sworn officers in 1993 . 

Physical force was used in 83 percent of all assaults on 
police officers. 

The greatest number of assaults 1,572 (38 percent) occurred 
while officers were responding to disturbance calls (family 
disputes, man with a gun, etc.) 29 percent of assaults on police 
officers occurred between 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 A.M. 

A total of 4,032 assaults on law enforcement officers were 
cleared during 1994 amounting to a 97 percent clearance rate.

EMPLOYEE DATA 



LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 



POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program in Maryland incorporates the 
collection of pertinent data relating to the police of the State. 
Information regarding police employee strength is discussed in this 
section. 

This information is submitted by county, municipal and state law 
enforcement agencies and compiled on an annual basis. Specific 
information concerning the number of law enforcement employees 
reflects the status as of October 31, 1994. 



LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE RATES 

In 1994, the average number of full-time law enforcement employees 
(state, county and municipal) including civilian employees, amounted 
to 3.4 for each 1,000 inhabitants of the state. The rate based on 
sworn personnel only (excluding civilians), amounted to 2.7 per 
1,000 population. In 1993, the average number of full time law 
enforcement employees amounted to 3.3 for each 1,000 inhabitants, 
and 2.6 sworn personnel per 1,000 inhabitants of the state. 

The ratio of law enforcement employees per 1,000 population in any 
given area or municipality is influenced by a number of factors, 
much the same as the crime rate. The determination of law 
enforcement strength for a given county or municipality is based on 
factors such as population density, size and character of the 
community, geographic location, proximity to metropolitan areas and 
other conditions which exist in the area generating the need for law 
enforcement services. Employee rates also differ among agencies 
since, in particular, there is a wide variation of the 
responsibilities and level of activity within various law 
enforcement agencies. The information in this section relates to 
reported police employee strength and should not be interpreted as 
recommended strength for any area. 



CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES 

The personnel of each law enforcement agency differ as to the 
demands and responsibilities placed before them. Many police 
officers are fully occupied with clerical tasks and are not free to 
perform active police duties. Some police administrators use 
civilians in this capacity, thus freeing the sworn personnel for 
actual police related services. 

As of October 31, 1994, 3,967 or 23 percent of the total number 
of police employees in Maryland were civilians.
